Is JDBC input plugin installed default while installing logstash 1.4.2 or logstash 1.5.4?

Hi,

is JDBC input plugin installed default while installing logstash 1.4.2 or logstash 1.5.4?

We need to use this plugin for Oracle Database.

How to know the list of input plugins installed on logstash 1.4.2?

I can able to see the list of input plugins in logstash 1.5.4 using below command in linux.

bin/plugin list --group input

Thanks,
Thiru.

The installable plugin support and hence the plugin command was added in Logstash 1.5. I'm pretty sure the jdbc input plugin doesn't support 1.4 (even if installed manually).

Thanks Magnusbaeck for your reply on this....!

JDBS only works with 1.5+, and doesn't come installed by default in either 1.5 or 2.0.

Thanks for the update...Warkolm....!

Hi,

This is to install logstash-input-jdbc plugin in logstash 1.5.4
Can we have a separate plugin directory that we can install to?

Thanks,
Thiru.


(Mark Walkom) #7

Not currently, no.

Can we have a separate plugin directory that we can install to?

Why would you want to have that?

Magnusbaeck,

We don't have permission to install the logstash-input-jdbc plugin where logstash installed by admin.

So we thought of installing into separate folder if we can.

Thanks,
Thiru.

Thanks Mark for your update on this.

Please do raise a feature request on Github for this :smiley:


(Thirunavukkarasu) #12

Yes Mark. We need it when admin installed the logstash with admin privilege. Then we don't have option to install plugin to try with new features like logstash-input-jdbc..etc....!.... :smiley:

You realize that you can run Logstash without it being installed by the sysadmin? If you run Logstash from somewhere in your home directory (or wherever you have write access) you can install the plugins however you like.


(Thirunavukkarasu) #14

Magnusbaeck,

Yes. We have logstash 1.4.2 installed on our home directory and we installed contrib plugin without having permission issue. However logstash 1.5.4 installed under different directory where we have issue with permission to install logstash-input-jdbc plugin. We may need to request our admin to install logstash 1.5.4 in our home directory to resolve this issue now. It will be great if we have separate plugin directory in future as Mark mentioned it in his previous response on this query.

Thanks,
Thiru.


(Magnus Bäck) #15

I don't get it. Why would you need sysadmin help for installing Logstash in your own home directory?


(Thirunavukkarasu) #16

Magnusbaeck,

We have only one account which is our home directory in prod server.

Will install it in dev server where we have our own directory.

Thanks for your immediate response on this..
